[I Have Changed Refuge So Often, In The Course Of My Rout, That Now I Can't Tell Between Dens And Ruins. But There Was Never Any City But The One. It Is True You Often Move Along In A Dream, Houses And Factories Darken The Air, Trams Go By And Under Your Feet Wet From The Grass There Are Suddenly Cobbles. I Only Know The City Of My Childhood, I Must Have Seen The Other, But Unbelieving. All I Say Cancels Out, I'll Have Said Nothing.]

Melinda Cross Quotes

"Cassie fumbled helplessly beneath the shade of the ancient oak, still searching for her second shoe.The first had been easy to find, having landed close to where she had kicked it off; and when her hand had finally encountered it, she clutched it to her breast in a gesture of smug triumph. For one brief moment, she felt a twinge of sympathy for the sighted people who would never experience such sweet victory from a task as simple as finding a shoe."

Quotes About Hidden Emotions

"Dear God, what she saw in that look! How he had hidden these many years behind the guise of a simple schoolmaster, she didnt know. Anger, passion, lust, and surging hunger swirled in his stormy eyes. Emotions so stark, so strong, she didnt understand how he kept them under control. He looked as if he were about to attack her, ravish her, and conquer London and the world itself. He couldve been a warrior, a statesman, a king." - Author: Elizabeth Hoyt

Quotes About Status Reports

"Nor do the females of our closest primate cousins offer much reason to believe the human female should be sexually reluctant due to purely biological concerns. Instead, primatologist Meredith Small has noted that female primates are highly attracted to novelty in mating. Unfamiliar males appear to attract females more than known males with any other characteristic a male might offer (high status, large size, coloration, frequent grooming, hairy chest, gold chains, pinky ring, whatever). Small writes, "The only consistent interest seen among the general primate population is an interest in novelty and variety...In fact," she reports, "the search for the unfamiliar is documented as a female preference more often than is any other characteristic our human eyes can perceive." - Author: Christopher Ryan

But in yourself - right deep down in yourself - how do you feel? Carnally speaking, are you at peace - from the dear grey hairs of your head to the patter of your little feet - are you at peace?"

Quotes About Unnecessary Lies

"We clutter the earth with our inventions, never dreaming that possibly they are unnecessary — or disadvantageous. We devise astounding means of communication, but do we communicate with one another? We move our bodies to and fro and incredible speeds, but do we really leave the spot we started from? Mentally, morally, spiritually, we are fettered. What have we achieved in mowing down mountain ranges, harnessing the energy of mighty rivers, or moving whole populations about like chess pieces, if we ourselves remain the same restless, miserable, frustrated creatures we were before? To call such activity progress is utter delusion. We may succeed in altering the face of the earth until it is unrecognizable even to the Creator, but if we are unaffected wherein lies the meaning?" - Author: Henry Miller
